me at 1-800-743-cnbc. when i used to teach selling stocks at goldman sachs, i told trainees you have to be ready to rebut the objections. expect challenges and meet them with good answers that put to rest the worries, concerns that would keep you from buying the stocks you want them to own. today the market put on a virtual rebuttal clinic and it led to a terrific day where the dow soared 179 points and the nasdaq surged 1.04%, as every important objection was silenced. no wonder we're closing in on those all-time highs. what are the negative presumptions that got rebutted? the u.s. economy must be slowing. right? i mean, on account of all that negative stuff people keep talking about. guess what. today made the notion seem fanciful. we got good macro, meaning we saw durable goods data, showing demand for machinery rose the most in two years. how does that happen? it comes on top of the recent increase in container board, the corrugated box stuff that your packages come in, fedex and stuff. one of the most sensitive economic indicators out there and then a $50 increase in sheet steel
you this earnings season. i wanted to offer you a new way to use earnings season, to put it in perspective, because most of you watching the show are not these day traders that i think really hijack a lot of the thinking. you're not trying to game a given quarter. it's become so difficult to predict, and often the initial moves aren't even accurate because of the press coverage or because something nasty occurred in the overall market because of europe or something involved with the election. in other words, other than those who are shorting or going long stocks ahead of the quarter, these earnings reports need a context to make you money. they can't be relied upon anymore because they aren't as predictive of future behavior as they once were. they are a piece of the puzzle, a part of the mosaic, but they are only one of many important parts of what predicts where a stock will go over the intermediate term. that tends to be the focus that i teach on the show. and it is a teaching show because i want you to know the metrics i'm using to pick stocks i talk about and recomme
. are they being bought? are these evaluations stretched as the younger analysts have told us? take virgin media, look at the chart, that is a gigantic european cable company. closed at 38 and change yesterday. too much of a run? isn't that a stock worth selling, fleeing? not if you are john malone. the a man so renowned for his deal savvy, my college, david faber on "squawk on the street" call him the smartest man he ever met. after i had taken a minute of umbridge b i found myself concurring. he is paying mid 40, nts waiting for the dip. mid 40s, possibly 47, 48. david didn't know the exact price. in a total aforemation, europe, it is a european cable company. how do i know about his snbs he doesn't care there is no pullback, he is ready to shell out $12 billion to get it done. the three titans say, they are not walking away from the weakness. they are taking the plunge. here is the bottom line. when the richest men in the world are buying everyone a drink, buy, buy, buy. should we sit back and pass on the weakness that market periodically gives you? take the plunge when they plunge. virgin me

. that keeps it from earning a decent return for doing nothing at the moment as you used to be able the ofor so long. i have said that the cash itself has gone from being a positive at a time when so many companies have stretched balance sheets to a negative as it generates a small return. i have suggested they put some of the cash to work, buying the growth that many feels like has been lost. perhaps buying twitter to be more moving aggressively into the social media. or netflix. or even somewhat fa she newsly itunes. all that said i never thought in a million years that somehow apple's become a bad actor. because of its conservative ways of handling its bank hoard. i have simply thought that it should be more creative at figuring out how to put it to use. never sue for them that. see -- ilorne said it reminds me of his depression era grandmother. he wants a annual 4% cash dividend. which he says could boost the faltering stock. at least by of late, several hundred dollars a share he thinks he can move it. let me say this. i run a charitable trust that as this a stock in apple and i'm hard pre

guidance seriously. i want to tush to the longer-term thing themes that got us here. it can't turn on a dime. it might feel like it could, but i want to turn to themes that don't have me suggesting go 100% like i heard some to say or end of the world, and i'm not going to tell you to be a traitor. i've worked hard on the show to get away from being trading, the risk on, risk off garbage. that you need to dump everything because it's thursday, the vast majority of you are not traders and you deserve not to be whipped. you deserve better than that. let's start with my favorite theme, housing. we developed an unbelievably negative attitude on housing. worries about home builder optimism and allegedly a terrible quarter from toll brothers. first of all it wasn't a negative conference call. the business stronger than it was in years. 49% increase in orders and the backlog is that really bad? many areas across the country, toll brothers selling out developments faster than it ever has. and how to people miss this stuff? i have to belief traders only read the headline numbers and freaked
encapsulates just about everything that's driving us higher, much higher than people believed possibly coming into 2013. intrigued? all right, so what did we hear today? we heard as january goes, so goes the rest of the year. we know that of the 11 times since 1950 that the s&p 500 was up more than 5% in january, like this one, we had spectacular advantage for the rest of the year, 10 out of 11 of those times. let me tell you why my super bowl indicator could foretell why we may make 2013 the 11th of 12 years we've been up big after a bountiful january. it's not if the afc wins, the market goes higher, knucklehead prognostications. we don't let that kind of thinking going on on "mad money." no, my theory's based on geographical metaphors. the first, baltimore, home of the ravens. ironically named after the raven, written by edgar allen poe, also coincidentally the author of the purloined letter. when you think of baltimore, you think of grit, of old line businesses that make things, smokestacks, yes, aging, but still powerful american industrial and manufacturing might. then there's san franc
the stock of an improving company fall or the stock of a deteriorating company rise, many use exchange traded funds to get exposure to entire sectors, some allow them to buy or sell, giving them double or triple of the buying or selling back for the original buck. regard this as needless proliferation of etf and we can trade in lockstep with each other. and the good in complete tandem with the bad is ultimately, the facts show out. a determinant. if the stock's a house, the sector is the neighborhood. and nobody wants a good house in a lousy neighborhood. but the influence of etfs becomes noxious, pernicious even it makes the sector more important than it should be, important than it should be, you have high frequency traders who can actually really -- i have seen them hijack an entire market, causing massive across the board moves that make no sense in the fundamentals of the individual companies, especially moments of extreme volatility, new waves distort the stock picking beach. i hate it, and when times get tough for companies, they can get tougher for stocks. i spend a lot of time

to home depot as a barometer because it has faithfully told us what percentage of the household dollar it thinks is being spent on home improvement. so far there's been no real surge, even though home depot's stock has surged, but that could be changing. and changing just when the analysts are getting really skittish about housing. remember the downgrade about home depot? i do it in my charitable trust. mostly because of what seemed to be an errant report from toll brothers earlier this week, an earnings miss that in reality was anything but. if we didn't have bernanke talking i would tell you all i really care about are the reports out of lowe's and home depot because the improving domestic housing market immune from old worries out of europe and china has been my number one thesis for about a year on "mad money" and it has produced some of the most bountiful gains of any theme i have ever exploited. we know that the less well off are being hurt by what i call the script, and the script is higher gasoline prices, prices by the way that i think are caused in part by speculative hoardin
